Apache-Tomcat Integration Problem: only works locally.

I configured Apache web server and Tomcat to work together. Apache uses port 80; Tomcat uses port 9090. If I use localhost to access the servlet by using http://localhost/myServlet, it works fine. But if I use the domain name like http://www.myDomain.com/myServlet, the servlet does not work. Even if I try on the same local computer. There must be configuration problem. For static pages, http://www.myDomain.com just works fine. By the way I am using a Linsys router, and I have configured the router to enable port 9090.
Thanks for any help.

How are you getting Apache to forward requests to Tomcat? Are you using mod_jk, Apache conf settings or something else?

Yes, I use mod_jk. I configured it according an internet tutorial. The example servlets works fine.
I tried to add a context node to the Tomcat server.xml file but added it at a wrong place. I deleted the line and restart Tomcat. Now I can not even make the examples to work. I get error similar to "servlet\examples\HelloServletExample not available". Configuring Tomcat is a headache. I am using windows xp.

I'll move this to the Apache/Tomcat forum for you, you'll get a better response there.

Can you send us the relevant portions of your httpd.conf, server.xml and workers.properties files?

What is the error you are getting?

Hi George.

I don't know if you figured out your problem, but it looks to me that you need a JKMount for the "praxiswebapp".


I would be nice if there were a little map in the Jakarta documentation that said stuff like that.

For instance, I found out the hard way that you may unexpectedly get Apache trying to send requests via AJP12 to a listener on 8007, it seems to be some sort of hard coded fall back feature of mod_jk.

I believe that is correct.

You need to add the context path in the httpd.conf.

Either:


This will have to be done for each web application you want handled by Tomcat.
